Well Isn’t That A Fine “How’d Ya’ Do” …

The Liebster Blog Award

Well would you look at this.  Thank you Emilio, from Cook and the Fly for the nomination!  Nice way to start the week.

Liebster Award


I was chosen by Emilio Fracchia from Cook and the Fly as one of his 5 Liebster Blog Award winners. Emilio is a friend of mine from San José del Cabo, In Baja California Sur, Mexico, and he writes a blog about fishing the Sea of Cortez (mostly) and cooking what he catches.

He explains what this award is all about, so I am going to steal from him in explaining it:

“This Award is about promoting smaller blogs with less than 200 followers, which you think deserves special recognition.There are a few simple rules to follow. In order to accept the award, the recipient will:-Thank the person who gave you the Award, and link back to that person’s Blog

Copy and Paste the Award to your Blog

Choose 5 more blogs to award, and let the writers know by leaving a comment.”

Here are the 5 blogs the I selected (in no particular order):


Jennifer Krausert writes a blog about diet, exercise, being vegan, and being pregnant.  Basically, if I was a pregnant woman, I would want to be her.


Greg and Andrea write a truly inspired blog about how design has influenced their lives.  A fairly rad breakdown of how design can help almost any situation.  They’re like … crime-fighters … if crime was poor use of space.


Neil Evans writes a blog about wine and why he loves it.  I like reading his blog because his posts are short but sweet.  Also, I think that someday, if we ever meet, we’d probably both wind up in jail for public drunkenness.  (Don’t tell him I said that.  I want it to be a surprise.)  ALSO, the name of his blog makes me imagine two bottles of wine, fighting … to the death!


I like Kim’s blog because it is irreverent, yet thoughtful.  Also, the photo of her on her porch, paired with her description of the alcohols she likes, makes me feel cozy and thirsty.


What I like about these guys is that their site is about what it’s about: recipes, and lots of ’em.  Unlike some blogs (ours), that seem to go on forever about nonsense before they get the to point, Joe and Julie get right to it and share with you their love for cooking.


Anyway, thanks again to Emilio and happy reading!
